Bluebell Railway, 1970

A few more very old pictures from my album.  This was a school railway club trip to the Bluebell Railway, I think.  Steam on British Railways had finally died in 1968, so to go to this little preserved line and see old steam locos in operation was something special.

And note the total lack of health and safety!
